VERMILLION, S.D. -- Student engagement, campus sustainability and security. These campus-wide topics have found their way to Vermillion with the support of executive leadership in the Student Government Association. But next week it’s the students’ turn to find out just what SGA candidates want to do for USD.
The Cross Media Council will host a debate between the two SGA executive teams running for president and vice president. Junior Cameron Frentress and running mate sophomore Anna Madsen will square off against junior Nathaniel Steinlicht and running mate junior Michelle Novak at 7 p.m. Feb. 25 at in the Al Neuharth Media Center conference room. The event is free and open to the public.
